          of  the  course is  to encounter different

          and  to  trace the  development of certain
          political, religious, and aesthetic ideas.
          The syllabus will include Dante, Christine
          de  Pizan, Machiavelli,  Shakespeare, John
          Donne, and Voltaire.

ENGL 241  Currents in British Literature The                      3 credits
          Victorian Sensation Novel                         

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP/GFR:Meets AH.  Although the Victorians
          have   been  stereotyped  as  prudish  and
          frumpy,  they  were utterly  enthralled by
          murder, mystery, scandal, and suspense. In
          fact, they raised their prurient curiosity
          about  these matters into  an art form-the
          Sensation  Novel-which enjoyed  its heyday
          in the 1860s to the 1880s. Including texts
          such  as  Wilkie Collins's  The Moonstone,
          Mary  Elizabeth  Braddon's  Lady  Audley's
          Secret,   Thomas   Hardy's   Tess  of  the
          D'Urbervilles,   Anthony   Trollope's  The
          Eustace   Diamonds,   and   Robert   Louis
          Stevenson's  Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this
          course  explores  a fascinating  moment in
          British  literary  history. As  we analyze
          the social context of these works we learn
          more   about   feminist  polemics  in  the
          Victorian  era, together with the politics
          of   melodrama,   trends   in  genre,  and
          movements in print culture that profoundly
          affected the reading public.

          Memoir                                            

(PermReq) Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  In this course
          we  will  examine the  memoir through both
          reading   and  writing.  We  will  read  a
          selection    of    contemporary   memoirs,
          discussing them both as artistic creations
          and purportedly factual documents. As part
          of  the  study  of the genre  and craft of
          memoir,   students   will   do  their  own
          writing, ranging from in-class free-writes
          to  at home writing  exercises that invite
          experimentation  with various storytelling
          techniques.   The  final  section  of  the
          course  will investigate the issues raised
          by  translating/shaping  a  written memoir
          into  an  aural performance.  Students may
          have  an  opportunity to  participate in a
          storytelling  performance  similar  to the
          Stoop          Storytelling         Series
          (stoopstorytelling.com).     Prerequisite:
          Completion   of   a  200-level  literature
          course  with  a grade of  "C" or better or
          special permission. For permission contact

          Modernism and Modernity                           

          Grade   Method:   REG/P-F/AUD   What   was
          modernism?  How  did  it  grow out  of the
          intellectual and historical climate of the
          late   nineteenth   and   early  twentieth
          centuries?  We'll explore  these questions
          by reading a sampling of modernist fiction
          from  Great Britain, the U.S., Europe, and
          beyond,  in relation to  key concerns such
          as  urbanization,  industrialization,  and
          empire.  We will also explore questions of
          self   and   consciousness,  identity  and
          belonging, sexuality and gender, truth and
          narrative  as  they  come  to  us  in  the
          experimental  works of James Joyce, Joseph
          Conrad,   Franz   Kafka,  Virginia  Woolf,
          William  Faulkner, Nella  Larsen, Mulk Raj
          Anand and others. Some previous experience
          with    twentieth   century   writing   is
          preferred  but  what is  most important is
          that   you  are  ready  to  explore  these
          sometimes difficult but always fascinating
          texts.   Prerequisite:   Completion  of  a
          200-level  literature course  with a grade
          of "C" or better.

ENGL 350  Major British and American Writers Chaucer              3 credits

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD English 350 is a
          course  devoted  to the  poetry, life, and
          times of Geoffrey Chaucer. We will examine
          the  historical  and political  aspects of
          the works he wrote, to understand the ways
          in  which  Chaucer  presents  the relation
          between  art  and politics.  Since Chaucer
          wrote  in the late  fourteenth century, we
          will    also    consider   late   medieval
          understandings   and   representations  of
          social   class,   religion,  spirituality,
          death, gender, subjectivity, and so forth.
          One  of  the chief concerns  of the course
          will   be   the   question   of  Chaucer's
          orthodoxy   (or   heterodoxy)  in  matters
          poetical  and religious.  Among the genres
          to  be  covered are the  dream vision (The
          House  of  Fame)  and the  collective poem
          (The Canterbury Tales).  Students may wish
          to read Andreas Capellanus' Art of Courtly
          Love   prior   to   taking   the   course.
          Prerequisites:  Completion of  a 200 level
          literature  course  with  a grade  of C or
          better.

ENGL 369  Race and Ethnicity in U.S. Literature                   3 credits

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP/GFR:Meets AH.  At the beginning of the
          twentieth  century, W.E.B.  Du Bois wrote,
          "The  problem of the  twentieth century is
          the   problem  of  the  color-line."   His
          statement was made against the backdrop of
          the  history  of  chattel  slavery  in the
          United States and the continuing denial of
          freedom  for  descendents  of  slavery. We
          will  consider the shifting manifestations
          of  this  color  line  from mid-nineteenth
          century     to    contemporary    American
          literatures,  and  how  the  line  of race
          intersects  with ethnicity.  How do global
          experiences  of ethnicity compare to those
          in  the  United States?  Early writers may
          include  Herman  Melville,  William  Wells
          Brown,  and  Harriet Beecher  Stowe.  From
          the  twentieth century, works may be drawn
          from  W. E. B.   Du Bois, Anzia Yezierska,
          Jean  Toomer,  Maxine Hong  Kingston, Toni
          Morrison,  and Leslie  Marmon Silko, along
          with   other   stories   and   selections.
          Prerequisite:  Completion  of  a 200-level
          literature  course with a  grade of "C" or
          better.

          American Literature                               

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  The  topic of
          this  course  will be  American Poetry and
          the   World.   In  the  last  few  decades
          American poets have been vocal and visible
          witnesses  of the United States' emergence
          as a world superpower.  In this seminar we
          will look at the insightful, aesthetically
          convincing ways in which poets like Muriel
          Rukeyser, Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop,
          James   Merrill,   Frank   O'Hara,   Allen
          Ginsberg, Gwendolyn Brooks, Adrienne Rich,
          Amiri  Baraka,  Ron  Silliman,  and others
          articulate national and global concerns in
          their  work.   Our main text  will be Cary
          Nelson's   Anthology  of  Modern  American
          Poetry  (including its website component),
          as  well  as  single  volumes  by  some of
          today's   most   promising   young  poets:
          Harryette   Mullen,  Mark  Nowak,  Juliana
          Spahr, Ben Lerner. Prerequisites: ENGL 301
          with  a  grade  of  "C" or  better, senior
          standing, and some familiarity with modern
          poetry.  Permission  of the  instructor is
          required.

ENGL 442  Seminar In Visual Literacy                              3 credits

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD Just  as texts
          can  be  read  if  we  learn to  speak the
          language      (both      literally     and
          structurally),  so  too  can  we  learn to
          "read"  images, which have  their own kind
          of  visual language. This class will focus
          on   the   reading,   interpretation   and
          creation  of  visual texts in  the form of
          images,  video and graphic novels. It will
          also  investigate ways in which visual and
          textual  languages often cross over - from
          cave   paintings   to   the   language  of
          typography.      Prerequisites:     Senior
          standing and permission of the instructor.

ENGL 448  Seminar in Literature and Culture                       3 credits
          Literature of Empire                              

(PermReq) Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD Imperialism is a
          highly  complex  political,  economic  and
          cultural   phenomenon   that  recurs  with
          amazing   historical  frequency.  In  this
          course   we'll  examine  how  the  British
          perceived  the  Imperial experience  as it
          developed  during  much of  the nineteenth
          century.   We'll examine  how literary and
          non-literary texts addressed the colonized
          subject,   and   Imperial   identity;  how
          language,     administration,    religion,
          sexuality,   health,   culture   and  even
          questions  of  metaphysical  reality  were
          pressured by Imperial relations with other
          geographies,  cultures and  societies; and
          how  Empire  and  Imperialism  come  to be
          theorized,  both by the  Victorians and by
          contemporary  scholars.   Possible authors
          include   Kipling,   Conrad,  Flora  Annie
          Steele,    Olive    Shcreiner,    Doughty,
          Macaulay, Charles Darwin, James Mill, John
          Sturart Mill, Mary Kingsley, Emma Roberts,
          Ballanytne, and Frances Compton Burnett.

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD  Also listed as
          ENGL   686.   Since   the  late  1960's  a
          revolution has taken place in the teaching
          of composition. This course will trace the
          profound  changes in  our understanding of
          the  teaching of writing  by examining key
          theories  and major players during this 35
          year period. Included will be expressivest
          theories  of  Murray and  Elbow, cognitive
          approaches  of  Emig  and  Flower,  social
          constructionist  approaches of Bartholomae
          and  Bizzell,  as  well  as  the political
          approaches  of  Fox, Rose,  and Hooks. Our
          reading  will include a  number of genres:
          Autobiography, Writers, Journals, Academic
          and  Personal  essays, and  Social Science
          research  reports.  Students will be asked
          to  consider  how  these  theories  may be
          instantiated     in    actual    classroom
          situations. Prerequisites: Senior standing
          and permission of instructor.
